The Rebirth of Education

Lant Pritchett

Despite great progress around the world in getting more kids into schools, too many leave without even the most basic skills. In India's rural Andhra Pradesh, for instance, only about one in twenty children in fifth grade can perform basic arithmetic.The problem is that schooling is not the same as learning. In The Rebirth of Education, Lant Pritchett uses two metaphors from nature to explain why. The first draws on Ori Brafman and Rod Beckstrom's book about the difference between centralized and decentralized organizations, The Starfish and the Spider. Schools systems tend be centralized and suffer from the limitations inherent in top-down designs. The second metaphor is the concept of isomorphic mimicry. Pritchett argues that many developing countries superficially imitate systems that were successful in other nations— much as a nonpoisonous snake mimics the look of a poisonous one.Pritchett argues that the solution is to allow functional systems to evolve locally out of an environment pressured for success. Such an ecosystem needs to be open to variety and experimentation, locally operated, and flexibly financed. The only main cost is ceding control; the reward would be the rebirth of education suited for today's world.

George Bush's Foreign Aid

Carol Lancaster

Over the past seven years, the Bush administration has launched a revolution in U.S. foreign aid. At no time since the administration of President Kennedy have there been more changes in the volume of aid, in aid's purposes and policies, in its organization, and in its overall status in U.S. foreign relations. George Bush's Foreign Aid: Transformation or Chaos? analyzes in detail the array of recent reforms of U.S. economic assistance and the difficult issues these reforms raise, while placing the changes and the manner of their implementation in a historical and political context. Lancaster draws out the challenges and opportunities this transformation of U.S. aid offer for the next administration to engage the emerging world of the 21st century.

A Transatlantic Pivot to Asia

Hans Binnendijk

The American pivot or rebalancing to Asia is a central tenant of U.S. President Barack Obama's national security strategy. It envisions shifting America's focus from decade-long stability operations in the Greater Middle East to a comprehensive approach towards Asia, a region of economic growth and political instability. Many in Europe have misinterpreted this strategy as a U.S. move away from Europe. The purpose of this volume is to correct this record and to suggest that Europe too has vital interests in Asia. The transatlantic partners share common interests in Asia and need more effectively to coordinate their efforts to deal with the complex and dangerous challenges presented in Asia. There needs to be a "Transatlantic Pivot," not just a U.S. pivot. This volume analyzes various elements of what this Transatlantic Pivot might look like, including institutional arrangements, security issues, economics, energy, the environment, transnational challenges, human rights, rule of law, and diplomacy. It suggests a new trilateral relationship between the U.S., Europe, and Asian partners designed to strengthen Asian institutions, solve global problems and resolve disputes peacefully.Authors from the U.S., Europe and Asia contributed to this volume, including: Hans Binnendijk, Tim Boersma, Jaime de Bourbon Parme, Cathleen Cimino, Patrick Cronin, Pieter Feith, Mircea Geoana, Daniel Hamilton, Christopher Hill, Robert Hunter, Karl-Heinz Kamp, Rem Korteweg, Michael Schaefer, Jeffrey Schott, Julianne Smith, Alexander Sullivan, Simon Tay, Abiodun Williams and Reuben Wong.

Five Dimensions of Homeland & International Security

Esther Brimmer

This book considers the intersections between homeland and international security and the implications of these connections for preparedness. After the terrorist attacks of 9/11, many analysts abandoned traditional strategic tools such as deterrence and dissuasion. Yet policymakers need to consider a range of effective actions to enhance preparedness. The possibility of catastrophic, high consequence events demands that policymakers go beyond piecemeal extensions of current policies and devise comprehensive defense-in-depth. They could develop policy in "5D"—by integrating new approaches to five dimensions of policy: deterrence, dissuasion, denial, diplomacy, and defense. The 5Ds could give policymakers ways to "project resilience" with others abroad as we build resilience at home.
